she stands on top of the world
on a pedestal of her own making:
of tears,
of denial,
and of ignorance;
it's all hers for the taking

she is blind to the pain
she has caused with her pride,
blind to the desperation
she stirs with every lie,
blind to the aid that has been tried,
sharp as it may have been

all roses may have thorns, yes, but there is
poison in her mouth,
fire in her blood,
and vanity most of all,
for she only admires her inflated petals
and forgets all about her flaws

it's so easy for her to ignore what she doesn't want to see,
so easy for her to disregard people who differ,
so easy to live in an unchecked world of her own,
because we're all just throwing rocks at things that glitter

    ahhh do you know the lyrics "So don't you worry your pretty, little mind
    People throw rocks at things that shine" from the song "ours by taylor swift. this reminded me of that

    This is such a great poem - I loved the title so much when I saw it, and the poem certainly lived up to it! An amazing piece and so honest and real (if that makes sense)

    amazing piece, this is beautiful. "for she only admires her inflated petals and forgets all about her flaws" how could that be any more perfect???? the first two lines kinda reminded me of "monster" by shawn mendes.
